Pakistani batsmen honed their skills in the nets while fielders practiced catches and throws. The team looked in fine form during this session, demonstrating their readiness for the upcoming competition.

Pakistan’s leg-spinner, Usama Mir, speaks off-camera to reporters on the sidelines after a practice session. He expressed the team’s determination to seize the opportunity.

„We hope to make it to the semi-finals. Every member of the team understands the importance of the competition and wants to do their best. The relationship between everyone is friendly,” said Mir.

Usama Mir added, „We are all trying to perform well. I am also working on improving my bowling. This is a significant game for us. After winning the last match, we are all confident.”

In a heart-warming move, Pakistan cricket team showed kindness to a disabled Indian fan. Captain Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and other players met the fan, signed his memorabilia and took a selfie with him. The Pakistani cricket team was thronged by fans as they returned to their hotel from Eden Gardens after practice.

Pakistan beat New Zealand in their previous match in a rain-interrupted thriller. Chasing 402 in Bengaluru, opener Faqar Zaman came out all guns blazing and scored the fastest World Cup century by a Pakistan batsman. Zaman’s 81 off 126* and Babar Azam’s 66* off 63 balls kept Pakistan ahead of DLS in the 26th over in the rain. The teams couldn’t come out to play after that, and Pakistan stayed alive in the semi-final race with a crucial win in the 2023 World Cup.
